Since the last update, we have had numerous productive meetings,
played kickball against our supervisors and mentors (given another inning, we would have handily defeated them),
and a few of our teams have even completed their Level 1 objectives, earning them this hallowed distinction:
Yes ladies and gentlemen, we are getting down to the wire. Take the Quickr team: today is our final day of large-scale development. At the conclusion of the work day, our codebase will be frozen, open only to minor tweaks and bug fixes in preparation for a private demo with numerous IBM executives and our own project owner on Thursday. Beyond that, local demos and expos abound next week, so once again only minor tweaks and superficial fixes will be permitted. Once the local expos have completed, we will be on our way to Armonk, and the development cycle for the summer will be finished.
Hard to believe. It's already been 8 solid weeks of work, and though we have (if I do say so m'self) a very impressive product to show for it, we still have quite a bit to finish.
Come to the local Raleigh Expo next Wednesday, August 5, at noon! Or see us in Armonk August 10-11.
